Your dd is so fortunate as this is first time I heard of such thing. How I wish my dd's school has such testing and every GEP teacher is like that. Just my luck or her less of luck to get into such school and a teacher who said that it is up to me (as parent) to decide whether to engage tuition for my dd. Yes there is remedial lesson but not of much use as it didn't help much and it the same for quite a no. of students who attend the same remedial lessons (not much improvement in the results). This teacher should do some 'serious thinking' but I have yet to see that. Just keep feeding back the same remark/comment like previous term. If she is a dedicated teacher she should realise something is wrong and do something. Seriously hope that next year my dd will get your dd's kind of teacher, someone really against tuition and can think of ways to help the kids.
Sorry to hear that your dd's teacher isn't very good. I thought this was common practice among all GEP teachers. I guess my dd was lucky to have had mostly dedicated GEP teachers.
